Easy Chocolate Tart Recipe – Big chocolate fan? Us too! That’s why we created a tart with an easy chocolate crust and rich chocolate ganache filling. It’s the most decadent slice that you won’t be able to stop eating. The sour cream gives it an extra smooth and slightly tangy filling. Top it with a little fresh whipped cream to balance it all out, but please don’t forget the flaky sea salt! For an extra smooth ganache we highly recommend using a good quality bar of chocolate over chocolate chips because the chips are made to not melt easily and may leave some chunks of chocolate unmelted in your ganache!

Scale

Ingredients

FOR THE CRUST
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, melted

FOR THE FILLING
9 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped
1/3 c. heavy cream
1/4 c. sour cream, room temperature
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
Flaky sea salt, for garnish
Whipped cream, for serving


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Add melted butter and mix until just combined. Press dough into a 10” tart pan with a removable bottom, being sure to go all the way up the sides. Dock bottom of crust with a fork.
  2. Bake crust until firm to the touch, but still shiny, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely.
  3. Place chocolate in a heat proof bowl. In a small pot over medium heat, heat heavy cream until simmering. Pour hot cream over chocolate and let sit 1 to 2 minutes. Add sour cream and salt and whisk until completely smooth.
  4. Pour ganache over cooled crust and smooth with an offset spatula. Top with flaky sea salt.
  5. Refrigerate until filling is set, at least 1 hour.
  6. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
